Best Answer

Electric power for any of the electric cars out there comes from normal household power sources. This is stored in a battery until the toy is ready to be played with.

What are u doing about the electric car?

The problem with electric cars is, where does the electricity come from to charge them up? Most electricity is generated by burning coal or oil. Some is hydroelectric, and some is generated by burning natural gas. If you are burning oil or natural gas to generate electricity for your electric car, you are WASTING half of it; it would be better to carry the oil or natural gas with you, and use it for fuel. The only electricity source that really makes sense for electric cars is something that cannot be made portable, and produces less total pollution that burning gas; nuclear or hydroelectric powerplants. Unfortunately, there isn't nearly enough nuclear or hydro power to waste on electric cars.

Does all electricity generate from nuclear technology?

No. electric power has been in common use for over one hundred years, but nuclear technology has been in use for only about fifty or sixty years. Hydroelectric power is generated by flowing water as at a dam. Solar electric power is electricity generated by sunlight. Geothermal electricity is generated by the heat from inside the Earth used to convert water into steam in a generator. Windmills driven by the wind generate electric power; and there are many other sources of electric power.
